"Aspire" Author Kevin Hall in the Philippines!

We were very privileged yesterday to have met in the flesh, "Aspire"author, human being extraordinaire... Kevin Hall! Prior to yesterday, I had very little idea who Kevin Hall is. We were told that he is a bestselling writer as well as life coach to many successful and well-known people. The one that stuck the most was that he has worked closely with Oprah. The short intro left me intrigued -- actually just more on the Oprah part. Haha.

I am very thankful for the opportunity to have heard this wonderful man talk and experience first hand the brilliance of his ideas. I am writing to share one of the very special things I took away from yesterday's training that I think will be very big help for anyone looking to be better, happier, and a come a little more closer to knowing themselves more.


"Genshai"
Kevin talked about a very powerful word, "Genshai." He said how we treat others is a mere reflection of how we see ourselves. When we see others as small and inferior, it's not because we are "big" and confident. We may not know it but that is how exactly we see ourselves.

One question raised in the audience was very interesting. The man went, "How do you show love to yourself so you can show love to others?"

Kevin shared 5 Declarations he tells himself every morning to assure his love for himself.

1. I AM WORTHY
2. I AM CAPABLE
3. I AM GRATEFUL
4. I FORGIVE MYSELF AND OTHERS
5. I TRUST MYSELF

I wanted to dismiss it as nothing more than positive self talk. Until Kevin asked us to say it aloud. I cannot believe how powerful the words are. I was only able to say "I am worthy" and I choked. I had a lump in my throat and I couldn't continue on to say the next four words, lest I burst into unexplainable tears.

I knew the words. I knew I am worthy, capable, grateful, that I can forgive, and that I trust myself. But there was something so different about saying it out loud and dismissing all doubt that I AM ALL THAT.

Do you believe you are all that? Give yourself the gift of love. You owe it to yourself to know that all that and more :)
